Update: I will still get this if I re-install, which I may do.
However for now, I have dist-upgraded within jaunty. At that, orca
produced no sound at all.
I installed sox, and trying to play an mp3 file got me no sound at all.
I installed aumixer, and changed the system volume from 0 to 100.
The mp3 plaied, but orca still wouldn't speak. Rebooting yet again got me
a system with seemingly no sound.
So maybe 9.04 is not as functional as I thought.
figuring I have nothing to lose, I am purging pulseaudio.

Starting to regret it, since I wanted LVM, but the installer doesn't
include it, but that's neither here nor there.
My urgent usability problem is: orca is starting when I alt-F2 and type
orca, but it says everything at an incomprehensible high speed, as
described previously on this list.
I have tried the "touch ~/.pulse_a11y_nostart" solution oft-described on
these lists, but it had absolutely no effect.
I need this laptop for a job in a few hours--are there any other solutions
which might be implemented, since the touch option doesn't work?
an "ls .pulse*" gets:
